Half Square Triangles R#5

Half Square Triangle = 4 1/2” finished block with one side dark print, one side light print

2 partners each to receive 15 finished 4 1/2” HST’s = total 30 HST’s made and sent

Start with two 5” print fabric charms (charms = a square cut of 100% cotton fabric, in this case 5”), one light print and one dark print. Place the two charms right sides together. Using your ruler and a pencil, draw a straight line on the back of the light print from the upper left hand corner down to lower right hand corner. Stitch a scant ¼” seam either side of the pencil line. Cut on the pencil line. Press gently so as not to stretch the block. Trim the dog ears, and then trim the block to 4 1/2 inches using the center seam line as your base. Always trim and press for success.

The goal is to get as many different HST’s as possible so please try to use a print only once unless you match it to a different print the second time. No solid fabrics.

We’ve found that the higher the contrast between the dark side and the light side, the better the HST’s work in any project.

Swappers must have at least 10 snail-mail swaps to their credit, and a 4.8 rate or better.

I will angel this swap but will publicize if you flake. Please don’t make me tattle!

Any questions or concerns are welcome, please PM me.

attention partners to TheycallmeWanda: I received a PM from her this week stating that she has had some "life issues" come up and will be sending this swap late.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. I love to hear from you!

TheycallmeWanda, I hope things get back on track for you soon, and please let me kfnow if you need my help with anything.

I also know that RedVelvet35803 recently lost her DH (in October)and has not been on swap-bot due to his passing.

If you are one of her partners and have any questions or concerns, please let me know, I'd love to hear from you and help in any way I can.

If we do not hear from her by mid November, I'll be angeling this swap to her partners.

Looks like I'll be angeling to the partners of RedVelvet35803, so please be patient with me. I'll try to get them done before Thanksgiving....if anyone in this swap would like to help me out by angeling to one of her partners, I would forever be greatful.
